on my list | off-the-shoulder pieces

I feel similarly about this summer's latest trend as I do about unexpected new pairings on my favorite TV shows: will they? won't they? do I even want them to? The off-the-shoulder look is one I'm equally optimistic and skeptical about. I've seen some friends rock the heck out of gauzy white shoulder-baring looks, but I'm completely undecided as to whether or not I should snag one for myself. It would be an impulse purchase to say the least, but it also wouldn't be the first time I fell totally in love with an impulse buy, so who knows what I could be missing!

With summer in its final stretch, I'm thinking it's now or never. Here are a few off-the-shoulder pieces that may or may not be in my shopping cart:

one (also in white!) // two // three // four // five // six // seven // eight // nine


The off-the-shoulder look seems to have two iterations: the festival hippie and the Bridgette Bardot reincarnate. Two, four, five, and seven fall squarely in the Bridgette category, which is much more my speed. Eight and nine lean towards the festival babe style, but definitely aren't out of the question with my high-waisted Levi's. On the other (third?) hand, I like that one, three, and six are pretty classic pieces that may withstand the trend, should I decide I'm an off-the-shoulder type of gal.

What's your take on shoulders? Should they be covered, or is showing a little something the perfect choice for summer? What's on your list this week?
